The ceremony of Shockwaves NME Awards 2009 has been wrapped up and it is unveiled that Oasis and Jonas Brothers are among the recipients for the annual music awards show for two completely different reasons. While Oasis were given the ultimate honor of being Best British Band, Jonas Brothers were handed out two of the Worst titles, Worst Band and Worst Album.

On Wednesday, February 25, at the O2 Academy Brixton, the Manchester band Oasis came out victorious over Muse and Radiohead among others. Though unable to attend the ceremony due to live commitments in Europe, the band sent acceptance video featuring also host Russell Brand. "This is ironic, we're being given Best British Band by the second best British comedian," Noel Gallagher jokingly said. "Thanks to all the readers who've voted... This has turned into a right bad idea..."

Meanwhile, musical trio Jonas Brothers picked up the most votes for Worst Band ahead of other nominees, including Oasis, Scouting For Girls, Tokio Hotel and Fall Out Boy. On the category of Worst Album, the pop rock band consisting of Kevin Jonas, Joe Jonas and Nick Jonas collected the unwanted award for their album, "A Little Bit Longer", 'winning' over Britney Spears' "Circus" and Coldplay's "Viva La Vida" among others.

Beside Oasis and Jonas Brothers, other winners included The Killers, Pete Doherty, MGMT and Muse. MGMT have brought home two NME statuettes for Best New Band and Best Track for their song "Time To Pretend". Additionally, U.S. 44th President Barack Obama has been hailed as Hero of the Year, while his predecessor George W. Bush was named Villain of the Year for the sixth time.

Jonas Brother's aren't the WORST band out there, at least they can sing, which is much more than can be said for many other auto-tuned artists these days. DESPITE their latest albums being pretty (admitted) terrible, they're still young, and they've got talent.

the whole fact that NME had to create two categories for "Worst Album" and "Worst Band" obviously shows that they ran out of ideas and had to put good bands down to make themselves look better. I used to read NME. Seriously, no longer.

For all of you who are defending the Jonas Bros, I would take your arguments a little more seriously if all of your names weren't <3 JBros or Jonasgirl or something of that sort. Obviously, you have are arguing on within a completely biased pretext. Plus, I would be willing to bet you are a member of their target audience: 6-14 year old girls who believe that anything put on television is quality. You have all the right in the world to like whoever you want, but when considering talent and artistic integrity, how about you leave it to those who have an expertise in music analysis and critique to determine who should be glorified and who should be dishonored.

FUCK NME!!!! Jonas Brothers don't deserve this award. Yeah, they aren't the best band but they CAN sing and they write their own songs, which is a lot more than i can say for other singers. JoBro's are such gentlemen and for them to receive the DUMB award is just heartbreaking. They're actually really good at singing

I dare you to fly over here to Taiwan so I can say they suck in front of your face. I don't do weights and martial arts without a reason.

nme's are obviously idiots. how can one band be both the best and the worst?! i don't even like the jonas brothers but i know they are NOT the worst band out there. they aren't even bad! they are no Beatles but they've got some serious talent on their hands.

anyone who hates the jonas brothers deserves death in a cruel and unusual manner. If someone came up to me on the street and told me that they suck to my face, theyd be in the hospital

Jonas brothers aren't even music. Kings of Leon are cheap southern versions of the strokes. and everything else is alright I guess.
